The philosophy behind REVIVED is to take used pieces of furniture and refurbish them to be as good as new again. Chairs are reupholstered, for example, tabletops get replaced and electrical systems are overhauled. All these activities take place at our Circular Hub.
Gispen Revived products are offered at our Circular Hub. The product range consists of furniture items that we have purchased or that were returned to us, after which they were cleaned, refurbished and repaired where necessary. You can benefit from these advantages when ordering a refurbished product from our webshop:
refurbished products a year
CO2 reduction (by refurbishing instead of new production)
of space filled with reused furniture
Our clients often think they need new furniture in order to implement a new business concept correctly. Our product designer and I often manage to surprise clients when we present them with all the options for reusing their furniture. These are the days when I come home in a particularly good mood.
I am always searching for new ways to make optimal use of the resources that find their way back to Gispen. Closing the loops is our ultimate goal. Considering all the products we are refurbishing I think it's safe to say that Gispen is on the right track!
A REVIVED tabletop is an innovative, circular choice for an Gispen TMNL table or desk. It reduces the environmental impact whilst choosing a robust material with a long life-span.
Compact material has been widely used for tabletops in the past. Tabletops made of this material can last up to 30 years. In practice, they are replaced after 10 years on average and the material is lost.
Our Circular Hub takes in around 5,000 used Compact tabletops every year. These are refurbished with a new top layer by an external processor. The now REVIVED tabletops are ready for their next life cycle. This process leads to a carbon footprint reduction of about 95%. By repeating it, we retain the value over multiple life cycles.
